The Storyboarder is an illustrator. He or she reads and analyses the script proposed by the scriptwriter and interprets it in the form of a storyboard. This is an illustrated and synthetic representation of a script before a detailed work, which takes production or publication constraints into account. The Storyboarder can work in a wide variety of professional sectors : film, animation, comic strips, advertising or video games. The Storyboarder works in close collaboration with the project authors. His/her main skill is that of narration but he/she also develops a sharp sense of page layout, framing and plan management. He/she can also be asked to research and provide the documentation necessary for the production of the final strip. A solid knowledge of the sectors he/she works with is essential.
